Further Maths Student: Don

"Studying Maths & Further Maths has deepened my understanding of maths introduced me to new areas of maths and given me a head start at university. I've enjoyed the pure maths modules the most; they require a lot of problem-solving which provides a unique challenge. The subject's specific links to Physics allow me to increase the standard of my work and understanding in this subject too. After A-levels, I intend to go on to study Aerospace Engineering at University"

Don studied: Chemistry, Physics, Maths & Further Maths

A-Level Maths Alumni: Lucy

After leaving St Brendan's, I went to Exeter University where I studied Business Economics with Industrial Experience. I spent my third year working in Corporate Finance at RSM where I was then offered a graduate role to begin upon the completion of my degree. After lots of hard work and many hours in the library, I achieved a "First" in my degree.

I have now been back working in Corporate Finance at RSM for three years and am one exam off completing my ACA qualification.

In ten years’ time, I hope to be working in a multinational company, probably in a big city, working my way up to being a CEO! Yes, it is a big dream, but I am determined to achieve it!

Lucy studied: Accounting, Business, Economics and Mathematics
